This is a book for the three million 'social' bridge players (in the UK alone) who know the rules and can play a reasonable hand, but want to refine their skills and improve their understanding of the game.
The 121 bridge tips range from simple to more advanced and all offer solid advice on how best to deal with a variety of situations. Tips are clearly explained and are followed by an example hand and a reader's test. There is no simpler way to improve your bridge.
